Discreet & comfortable

Looking to straighten your teeth but don't like the idea of a large metal brace

  • Let your brace be your secret with virtually invisible aligners from Invisalign.

  • Braces that can be easily removed for eating, brushing your teeth and the occasional night out are a popular choice with many adults. You’ll be happy to know that Invisalign and Inman Aligner are both removable appliances.

  • If time is of the essence, then Invisalign is good short-term option

Perfect your smile

All of our teeth straightening solutions are not stand-alone treatments – They can be used in combination with teeth whitening and other cosmetic treatments for a minimally invasive, safe and ideal path to a beautiful new smile!

We recommend booking a FREE no obligation consultation so you can talk to us about which of the orthodontic treatments is best for you and your unique teeth straightening needs.

Frequently asked questions about adult braces at Thorpe Lea Dental

How long does treatment take?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

6 months is the average treatment time. Depending on your teeth placement and the results you want to achieve, treatment times may range from 4-9 months.

Are clear braces painful?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

No, but some people can experience mild discomfort or tightness for a few days after the braces are fitted and for a short time after any adjustments, but that will be temporary.

How much do they cost?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

Clear braces at Thorpe Lea Dental start at £4,147 for both arches, but the full cost of treatment will depend on your treatment plan. We offer finance options and a membership plan to help spread out the cost of your treatment. See our Membership plan for more information.

Will clear braces affect my speech?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

No – once you get used to having them in your mouth, you’ll be able to do everything that you normally would, just with a little more care.

How do clear braces compare to Invisalign aligners?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

Both are great teeth straightening treatments, but one may be more suitable for you than the other depending on the current position of your teeth and the results you want to achieve. The most obvious difference is their appearance – clear braces use brackets and tooth-coloured wires that are attached to the teeth so they aren’t as discreet as Invisalign, but they’ll also usually need less treatment time due to their fixed nature. Invisalign aligners are clear trays that fit around all your teeth and are removable, but usually, treatment takes place over a longer period, and depends on how committed you are to wearing your aligners!
